    Taurus is stock. Colt is not.

    Couple of hundred rounds through the Taurus. One FTF, slide stop engaged twice with rounds still in the mag. Other than that, very happy with the pistol.

    My first attempt at hand making some new personalized grips. Made from an old Springfield 1903 stock blank reject recovered from my grandfather's shed. Not exactly perfect but better than the original plastic grips. They are inlayed with unit hat pins of units I served in while in the Marine Corps. Left side is the 3rd Battalion 6th Marine Regiment crest. The right is the Ship's Detachment crest from when I served on Sea Duty, which is the oldest job in the Marine Corps. Or, should I say was the oldest job, no thanks to Clinton.

    There's no replacement for displacement.

    I intended to do the slide in a deeper black with the frame in a silver, stainless steel or burnished bright metal. However when I got to the point with the slide preped I choked. I think the slide looks great in the burnished metal and allow the frame to remain black... kind of like my other Taurus PT145.





    These are not the best pictures, wish I had the talent and equipment of Rocketfoote, but perhaps you'll understand what I'm trying for here.

    Icon16 It was worth waiting for!

    Last year I decided on the 1911 from seeing the reviews in the gunzines. I went to my dealer in finally in June he got one! It was beyond my expectations. He only had one and was taking orders. Mine finally arrived in November. OTD $545. I took it to the range (indoor) and with two boxes of American Eagle FMJ proceeded to blow holes in the ceiling. The darned thing went full auto through an entire 8 shot mag and ended up ventiliating the sky. We ran back to the gundealer and he took one look at it and gave me a brand new one from the safe. He got the defective one back from Taurus a month later with a new sear and a apology. My 2nd one is faultless. I finally got 5K rounds through it and and trigger is down to 3.5 # pull. The target photo shows 3 shot group of 200 LSWC (Lee mold) lubed with Carnuba Red and at 25 yds from a sandbag gave me a group of 1.26". I put a set of Houge Laminated Rosewood grips on it and it is my CCW loaded with Federal 230 GR hydra-shoks.
